Chatter box Over 43,000 people have signed an online petition to make hedgehogs a protected species. Oliver Colvile MP, who launched the petition, has also received more than 3,000 paper signatures. But the petition closes in less than a month and it needs 100,000 signatures to be debated in parliament.

Hedgehog numbers have fallen by a third in urban areas and 50 per cent in rural areas since 2000. Mr Colvile said: "Their numbers are in serious decline and it is our responsibility and duty to help reverse that in any way we can."

Equestrian athlete Matthias Klausener and horse Dendros have been provisionally suspended by the FEI, after samples taken from Dendros tested positive for the banned substance Demecolcine at a competitive event in Somma Lombardo.

FEI also revealed the outcomes of two other cases. It has imposed a two-year suspension on Uruguayan athlete Fernanda Villar, after samples taken from the horse LG Muneerah tested positive for sedative Guanabenz.
